1:1 Laptops in High School

Our fairly new high school is 1:1 with laptops. Unfortunately, there isn't a great organization for them. The first year we had a low enroll so it just happened. The next year it was a free for all, kids would take any computer to use and most of the time they were left all over the school. This last year they put the students' names on them and students were supposed to only use their computer however, we know how that goes. Students were taking other computers, computers went missing, there was no great accountability for them. That brings us to this year. The administrators want to try something different but they're not sure how to go about it. We're also having some turn over in administration and one wants to allow the computers to go home but our head administrator does not. The head honcho does not want to create tech contracts and fees this year so that's off the table. There was talk of putting barcodes on computers and putting the carts throughout the building for students to check-in and out. (Honestly, I'm not quite sure how that would even work or how it would be different than the previous situations.)

Does anyone have any ideas on what we could do?
